Option A - CORRECT.
This option best describes an assumption which the argument relies on. Military Strategies have been known to be a do or die affairs, meaning you must win or succed no matter what. Relating the military strategy can be used in the world of marketing for brand promotion is a good desicion because it portrays determination of the investor to succed at all cost.

Option B - INCORRECT.
The claim in this option that military maxims can be used in any sphere of human existence is absolutely wrong, because the military tatics is too though to be implemeted in some area of human life.

Option C - INCORRECT.
Brochures are just a smaller book which have some informations about the success of other firms, therefore it can only be used as a guild and a guranted ways to further a firm's interests.

Option D - INCORRECT.
Well, the military strategy and financial strategy which differ in name only are not the main reason in the argument. Therefore, don't not worth a conclusion.

Option E - INCORRECT.
The claim in this option is also one of the reasons why the Military strategists are also adept at marketing, because they put more effort at succeding at all cost and adequately achieving their goals at all levels without relenting based on the challenges faced.
